The G70 completes the Genesis brand’s saloon lineup, along with the G90 flagship and mid-luxury G80. The arrival of G70 further strengthens the Genesis brand’s presence in the global luxury market.
In November 2015, Genesis launched and set out to compete with the world’s top luxury automakers as a Korean brand. Genesis introduced the top-of-the-range G90 saloon in December 2015, followed by the G80 saloon in July 2016.
The all-new G70 showcases the future direction of the Genesis brand’s design identity. Athletic elegance is represented in the exterior styling, as the car captures both beauty and tension, like an athlete poised to perform.
The G70’s interior is configured to prioritise an excellent user experience, with superb fit and finish throughout. The interior packaging reflects the thoughtfulness that drives the Genesis brand, with a priority on simplicity and an emphasis on genuine functionality instead of gimmickry.
The G70 offers three turbocharged powertrains – a 3.3-litre petrol V6, a 2-litre petrol 4-cylinder and a 2.2-liter diesel 4-cylinder.
Hyundai’s Lambda II 3.3-litre V6 engine is the backbone of the enthusiast-focused G70 Sport, which has 370bhp and 510Nm. The dynamic and powerful performer accelerates from zero to 100km/h in 4.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 270km/h. Variable-ratio steering and electronically controlled suspension are standard to provide agile steering response and an optimal ride-and-handling experience.
The G70 2.0 model is equipped with Hyundai’s Theta II GDI engine, with 252bhp (or 255bhp with the Sports package) of power and 353Nm of torque.
The G70 incorporates a diverse range of advanced technologies that deliver ultimate convenience and connectivity. The G70 will also be the first vehicle in Korea to feature server-based voice recognition technology, using Kakao’s artificial intelligence platform ‘Kakao I’.
